Do the Bob!

Sam Villa provides some tips on creating clean-cut bobs in a flash.

The streets of Paris were filled with chic bobs during fashion week! Blunt, frayed, sleek, fringed, naturally curly, slicked, tucked and rumpled-it was all about the bob.

"The bob is a timeless haircut that every stylist should have in their repertoire. Brush up on the international language of bobs with Bobology-a guide to modern variations of the classic bob.

"Bobology shows variations of the classic bob using disconnection cutting techniques," says Sam Villa, Founding Partner of the Sam Villa brand and Education Artistic Director for Redken 5th Avenue.

Cutting Tips:

When cutting a one-length bob, it's important to make a clean cut on the first run to reduce clean-up work.

Position the guiding blade with your ring finger and the cutting blade with your thumb, so the cutting blade collapses into the guiding blade for a sharp precise cut.

Overhand cutters who position the cutting blade against the skin lifting up to the guiding blade are not only bending their wrists in an awkward position, it makes it impossible to cut a clean line, which translates to more clean-up work and more time.

Turn your hand over, so the guiding blade is flat against the skin to achieve a clean sharp line.
